Sep 07, 2007 High school bans t-shirts supporting criminal defendants
Three students — and a few others — go to public high school wearing t-shirts supporting the freedom of their arrested brother and his co-defendants. The school bans the t-shirts, which say "Free the Jena 6".
The school’s First Amendment violation gives a poor civics lesson to students about the Constitution; it is more a lesson about urinating on the First Amendment. Jon Katz.
